The Supreme Court of Canada has paved the way for a class-action lawsuit over military veterans’ pensions.
Military mechanic Dennis Manuge of Musquodoboit, N.S., launched the lawsuit — representing about 6,500 injured veterans — and it was certified by the Federal Court.
But it was later rejected by the Federal Court of Appeal.
